Candidate Be stars IR Excess

Postby Andrew Smith » Sat Oct 04, 2014 7:34 pm

I have looked at the IR H-K and J-K values for all the stars in the candidate list. No star shows an excess in IR and are all in the expected range for CBe stars. data was taken from the 2MASS Point Source catalog. I also looked to see if they were in binary or multiple star systems but found no evidence for this

I think this improves the case for them being CBe stars.

Nice table Andrew. Good to hear the excess IR in compliant with Classical Be.
Perhaps i need to integrate these data on the Web page ?
